    Del Shannon, Platters, Drifters, Gary "U.S." Bonds 1961 Concert Handbill. An original paper flyer advertising a New York City stop on the Biggest Show of Stars for '61 concert tour that fall.

    One other highlight is how full of detailed ticket-buying information the venue box is. Printed in blue ink on what paper and measures 8 ½" x 11". In Near Mint Minus condition with a ¼" tear in the upper left portion, along with tape residue on the verso and light toning approaching the bottom right corner. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
